et uxor
(et-ux-or) Latin for "and wife." Often appears in its abbreviated form, et ux. In older deeds and documents, the phrase was used to indicate that a property was owned by a couple, consisting of a named man and his unidentified wife (for example, John Smith et ux.). In the present day, both parties are usually identified by name.
